Albany Athletics

Earlier this week on Levack and Goz the guys were joined by the head coach of the UAlbany football team Greg Gattuso. Coach Gattuso's team is officially underway with spring football practice in preparation for the 2017 fall season. The Great Danes kickoff their home schedule September 16th against the Monmouth Hawks. UAlbany's conference, the CAA, is arguably the toughest conference at the FCS level. The possibility of losing any conference game to an opponent could hurt a program's bid for an NCAA tournament bid. Unfortunately that possibility of losing a conference game could happen without the Great Danes ever even taking the field. UAlbany is scheduled to take on the Elon Phoenix on September 30th in Elon, North Carolina. One year ago today, Governor Andrew Cuomo banned all non-essential state funded travel to North Carolina in protest of North Carolina's HB2 law. The HB2 law prevents protections for transgender people and requires them to use public restrooms of the gender on their birth certificate, not restrooms of the gender they identify with. As a result, UAlbany's travel to Elon for hte game would be prohibited. Goz asked Coach Gattuso for an update on the status of the September 30th game.

Yeah I don't you know I stay out of it for right now because it's above my paid grade and I've learned a long time ago that I don't worry about things I cant control so whatever happens, happens. I'm coaching our football team and

hoping for the best, and we will handle it either way.
